About us

son-x is a leading edge technology and component supplier in the field of ultra precision machining. The technology developed and commercialized by son-x enables direct machining of steel with single crystal diamond tools. A consistent surface quality of Ra=3nm and a form accuracy of 150 nm can be achieved.

son-x offers:

  • Ultrasonic Tooling Systems for diamond machining of steel
  • Contract based manufacturing service (Mirrors, Moulds, Prototypes)

Main applications are optical mould inserts for injection moulding of: Automotive LED head lights, LED illumination optics, Camera lenses, Sensor lenses

Benefits of the technology: Direct diamond machining of steel; No nickel plating; Faster manufacturing, Less costs

Benefits of the Mould Inserts: Monolithic stainless steel inserts (no coating); Longer insert life; Faster manufacturing; Scratch resistant inserts; Quick repairing

On the Photonics West the second generation equipment “UTS2” with a unique frequency of 100 kHz is presented. Several mould insert examples are displayed.
